Agilent updates RF design tool for SIPs
Agilent Technologies has announced the next release of its Advanced Design System (ADS) RF design software for system-in-package (SiP) components.
ADS is a design tool for RF, microwave and signal integrity applications based X-parameters and 3D EM simulators.
ADS 2011 will have features to support multi-technology RF design, which enables co-design with multiple technologies (board, laminate, package, module, and IC).
There is also a use-model that is intended to make EM simulation (via Momentum and FEM) more accessible.
Agilent will formally introduce the software in November and December, and expects to ship in early 2011.
Existing Agilent customers and partners, including foundries and component vendors, can join the ADS 2011 Early Access Program beginning next month.
ADS 2011 will also be presented at European Microwave Week 2010, Sept. 26 – Oct. 1, Paris, CNIT La Défense.
